Gamasutra has an article on the failings of SWTOR and specifically on the conversion to Free to Play.
I’ve covered this topic enough to really not need to add much to the material. I agree with Simon’s argument but not so much with the tone. The entire argument reads as a “/ragequit” forum posting where the salient points are covered with hyperbole.
Read 3 pages of this and just remember this. SWTOR has made no improvements to the core game, simply added gates to the features. So many gates that it really pushes people to subscribe (but not purchase more once subscribed). Considering that the whole argument for moving to F2P was that subscriptions were a bad financial model, it begs the question.
Still, it’s worth a chuckle.
